Principia School


Principia is an independent, coeducational college-preparatory school offering innovative programs for Early Childhood through grade 12. Grounded in the teachings of Christian Science, we welcome students of diverse faiths who value scholarship and are eager to grow in character, embrace opportunity, and pursue excellence. Here, all members are encouraged to actively support and live our core value of LOVE and its attributes – Limitless potential: Overcome obstacles; Value God, ourselves, and others; Embrace excellence. We believe our commitment to these values and attributes strengthens the individual and unifies the community.

You are beginning an exciting journey to find the right educational fit for your child and family—a school that aligns with your family's values and supports the educational and character development goals you hope to achieve by the time your child graduates from high school!

At Principia, as the name indicates, the purpose is to base all work in Principle, thus laying a solid foundation scholastically, morally, and spiritually.
